The three books in the Play in the early years series are practical guides providing a wealth of ideas for supporting children’s learning through play. The books describe the value of play, and show how to plan for and support play in the early years setting.
- Discovery play offers advice on setting up treasure basket and discovery play sessions at all stages up to 5 years old.
- Outdoor play is full of ideas for new and exciting outdoor play, whatever the weather.
- Role play explores the rich and often undervalued area of play in which children are able to explore situations from their own or another person’s perspective.
Learning through play is at the heart of the Early Years Learning Framework, and each book provides detailed links to the five learning outcomes in the EYLF.
